Semiconductors are used throughout the electronics, power generation, and renewable energy industries. Advances in semiconductor design and manufacturing lead to devices that operate at higher voltages, temperatures, and frequencies while becoming smaller in size and gaining efficiency. 

They also play a role in advancing renewable and green energy initiatives. Wide bandgap semiconductors made from silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are particularly valued for their ability to improve the power capacity, distribution, and reliability of renewable energy systems.

As a result, demand for semiconductors is growing across sectors and that means more manufacturing capacity is needed. At Plastic Design, Inc., we supply products and custom services that support semiconductor and electronics manufacturing. We also offer a range of plastic fabrication, welding, and machining capabilities along with design, prototyping, and production services for custom applications.

How Plastic Design, Inc. Benefits the Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry

Working with the team at Plastic Design, Inc. has many benefits for large and complex equipment needs, stand-alone process stations, and everything in between. Here are just a few reasons to trust us with your application:

  • Turnkey solutions for semiconductor manufacturing processes: We begin with a survey to review your process or system as a whole as well as its component steps and operations. Then, we’ll design a complete solution that integrates the parts and assemblies required for each step (e.g., tanks, cabinets, fume hoods, etc.), and construct a unit that’s ready to install and put to use.
  • Engineering experience and support: Engineering assistance is available for pre- and post-production aspects of your project including help with preparing specifications, computer-aided design, prototyping, and design review.
  • Range of materials: We work with many types of plastic materials and stainless steel to meet application requirements from cleanrooms to wet process workstations and beyond. Options include, but are not limited to, polyethylene, polypropylene, polytetrafluorethylene, polyvinylidene fluoride, polyvinyl chloride, and chlorinated polyvinyl chloride.
  • Extensive manufacturing capabilities: We use state-of-the-art equipment for plastic welding and CNC fabrication processes including cutting, turning, milling, drilling, grinding, and laser cutting to build customized systems and components.
